ScyllaDB is a wide-column NoSQL database for data-intensive applications requiring high throughput and low latency. It was invented to take advantage of modern, highly performant cloud servers, including the new Amazon EC2 I4i series servers based on Intel Ice Lake x86 processors, and the Is4gen and Im4gn series which use Arm-based Graviton2 processors. ScyllaDB is fully compatible with Apache Cassandra and Amazon DynamoDB and is AWS Outposts Ready for on-premises deployments.
AWS Graviton processors are custom-built to enable the best price performance for workloads in Amazon EC2. As customers adopt AWS Graviton-based EC2 instances, they need the right software solutions to help integrate, deploy, monitor, and secure their Linux-based and containerized workloads. We are excited to announce the new AWS Graviton Ready Program, part of the AWS Service Ready Program which validates software products built by AWS Partners that integrate with specific services such as AWS Graviton.
Organizations turn to Arm-based servers when looking for a cost-effective way to improve performance for their common workloads like microservices, application servers, and databases. To give developers the option to run code on Arm-based instances in their CI/CD pipelines without maintaining infrastructure on their own, CircleCI added new Arm-based resource classes based on Graviton2 as an option for all users.
Application modernization requires a holistic approach, and Cloudwiry enables optimization and modernization of cloud deployments by evaluating AWS services involved. Learn how the Cloudwiry Enterprise platform can help your organization make informed decisions about application modernization. This post also takes a deeper look into specific examples of how Cloudwiry has helped customers optimize their cloud usage on AWS.
Splunk recently announced the availability of Armv8 64-bit architecture support for the Splunk Universal Forwarder. This allows AWS Graviton2 customers with Linux workloads to collect and forward machine data to their Splunk environment. Follow a step-by-step guide to set up a Universal Forwarder on a Graviton2 instance running Linux, and learn how to configure the instance and the Universal Forwarder to forward data to Splunk Cloud.
If you’re thinking about shifting existing workloads to an AWS Gravitron2-powered Amazon EC2 instance, Datadog can help you monitor your migration and get insight into your entire AWS infrastructure. Install the Datadog Agent, open-source software available on GitHub, to collect infrastructure metrics, distributed traces, logs, and more from your Amazon EC2 instances. With Datadog Amazon EC2 integration, you can monitor even more of your AWS infrastructure, complementing the data collected by the Agent.
Keeping your Linux system up to date with the latest operating system and application software patches is one of the most effective ways to strengthen system security. Enterprises sometimes neglect to install the latest security updates because most kernel upgrades and security patches require a system reboot, which means downtime and waiting for reboot cycles. KernelCare from CloudLinux can live patch Amazon EC2 instances based on AWS Graviton2 Arm64 processors.
With the recent launch of Amazon EC2 M6g instances, the new instances powered by AWS Graviton2 Arm-based processors deliver up to 40 percent better price and performance over the x86-based current generation M5 instances. At Rapid7, an AWS Security Competency Partner, thousands of customers use InsightVM scan engine to assess their EC2 instances for vulnerabilities. Learn how to deploy the InsightVM scan engine in an AWS Graviton2-based environment.
